When the world paused due to the recent lockdown it didn’t put a stop to the creativity and resilience of children.
Now, to celebrate the endless imagination and unique ingenuity that kids possess, the LEGO Group has unveiled an awe-inspiring installation – a 13ft globe – which showcases a build created by Jack Berne, Founder of A Fiver for A Farmer.
On Thursday 23rd January Jack was awarded an Australia Day award for Outstanding Community service.
The award was received with pride and honour and noted that Jack may only be 11 but he is one of the country’s most successful drought awareness campaigners. The campaign was picked up through the media in 2018 and to date has raised over $1.6 million for Australian farming communities. Jack visited schools and speaks on radio to ensure his message is heard, encouraging people to buy local and in-season.
On behalf of everyone on the Northern Beaches, we congratulate our Australia Day Award winners and thank them for their outstanding contributions to our community.

The Follow In Their Footsteps campaign aims to inspire kids to reach for the stars reminding them that they’re capable of achieving great things, even while still at school! Jack will be passing his donations onto Drought Angels. Check out the VIDEO!
